McDonalds Logo – Design and History


 

Image McDonald’s Corporation is the world’s largest chain of fast-food restaurants . Although McDonald’s did not invent the hamburger or fast food, its name has become nearly synonymous with both.The McDonald’s Golden Arches logo was introduced in 1962. It was created by Jim Schindler to resemble new arch shaped signs on the sides of the restaurants. He merged the two golden arches together to form the famous ‘M’ now recognized throughout the world. Schindler’s work was a development of the stylized ‘v’ logo sketched by Fred Turner, which was conceived as a more stylish corporate symbol than the Speedee chef character that had previously been used. The McDonald’s name was added to the logo in 1968.
